Actor Denis Rozhkov

And his perseverance was rewarded - he was invited to the cinema, and, thanks to the popular series, his life has changed dramatically. Therefore, in an interview with everyone who encounters obstacles on the way to a dream, he advised not to retreat and not to despair, but to believe, like him, in your lucky star.
Childhood and youth Denis Rozhkova
The actor was born on July 3, 1976 in Moscow. The boy’s parents were divorced, but in the family there was a man who became Denis’s father, it was my mother’s grandfather. Denis grew rapidly, was fond of music. Among the favorite artists invariably noted by Viktor Tsoi, Led Zeppelin and Beatles.
Rozhkov Denis Igorevich did not immediately become an actor
At the school, Rozhkov briefly attended many circles, including the judo, football, and marine club sections, but he was only interested in the theater studio. Love for the stage helped Denis successfully graduate from school - satisfactory marks were set for him, thanks to the efforts of the young enthusiast in preparing creative contests and concert programs.
The final choice of a profession for Denis was allowed by a meeting at a competition of young readers with a teacher and director Natalya Petrovna Ganysh, who directed the Zerkalo Theater Studio at the Tushino Center for Children and Youth Creativity, where the event was held. She liked the performance of Denis, and she invited him to her team. Rozhkov gladly accepted the invitation, he already dreamed of becoming an artist. Grandfather, as usual, supported his decision, but my mother convinced me of the advantage of working as a lawyer.
After graduating from school in 1993, the young man tried to enter various theatrical institutes of the capital; creative tours took place at VTU im. Shchepkin Institute. Shchukin, VGIK, GITIS, Moscow Art Theater School. But everywhere he failed. Despite this, Denis’s confidence in his calling remained unshakable, the magic of the scene beckoned him and did not let him go.

As an applicant, he met and made friends with Pasha Maykov, who also cut short on exams. Subsequently, Denis took him to the Mirror, and they performed on his stage together.
To prepare for the next assault on theatrical universities, Rozhkov entered the courses of the acting department of the Moscow Art Theater School, managed to please Oleg Tabakov and later worked in his workshop.
Actor Denis Rozhkov
After studying in 1998, the actor did not receive an invitation from Tabakov to the formed Tabakerki troupe, where he could use him in the repertoire. The young specialist was in the drama theater on Perovskaya. There was a lot of work there, but, due to the low salary, he had to work as a decorator, leading corporate parties, an animator at children's parties, Santa Claus. He undertook everything - he was a laborer in a bakery, a site moderator, a waiter, an insurance agent.
Now films with Denis Rozhkov are very popular
After working for two seasons, Rozhkov left the theater, where he did not feel satisfaction from creativity and felt uncomfortable. He wanted to go to another “Melpomene Temple”, but it was not easy to realize his plan - the actor was not accepted anywhere. Occasionally he performed in creative projects on the stage of the Russian Realistic Theater, the Debut Center. Attempts to break into the screen also failed. The difficult period in the life of the young man was helped by the wife, who showed tact and understanding, being the main breadwinner in the family.
When Denis almost came to terms with his long downtime, which lasted about ten years, he was invited to play the role of tattoo artist in the crime-detective television series "Silent Witness." The actor was finally allowed to return to his beloved profession with a series about the working days of law enforcement officers.

Denis Rozhkov - biography
This actor was unlucky for a very long time, he was unknown and unclaimed in the profession. But Denis Rozhkov believed in his lucky star, so he never gave up, and was firmly convinced that great luck awaited him. He upholstered the thresholds of film studios, sent out his photographs to all acting agencies, knocked on all closed doors. The persistence of the actor was soon rewarded - he received a role that marked the beginning of a great cinematic biography and completely changed his life.
Fame and popular love came to the actor Denis Rozhkov after filming in the series "Capercaillie", in which he tried on the role of police officer Antoshin.
After graduation, the actor tries to realize himself in the profession. He entered the Debut Center, which worked at the Central House of Artists, and went on stage in the production of Pure Truth. In parallel, he serves in the Russian Realistic Theater, where he is involved in the productions of Eugene Onegin and The Brothers Karamazov. But for some reason, the beloved work did not bring creative satisfaction, and the actor’s financial situation was unenviable.
He had few roles, the payment was rather modest, so Denis went in search of additional income. He performed at the matinees as Santa Claus, led corporate events. In addition, the actor found a side job on television, he was taken by a correspondent in one of the programs. At the same time, he was seriously carried away by video editing, and Rozhkov has a desire to retrain. The first half of 2011, Denis collaborated with the NTV channel - became the host of the “Culinary Duel”. Prior to that, he acted as a co-host in the Russian Lotto lottery.
The actor made a living in all known ways, but not his main profession. Rozhkov wanted to star, but for some reason the directors stubbornly remained silent, and did not call him into their projects. The first roles appeared in Denis since 2003, but they were episodic, and did not satisfy the ambitious actor at all.
Denis debut was the series “Blind”, in which he played a digger, then he appeared in the film “Next”, and again in the episode, in the image of the bandit Lemon. In total, the actor’s stagnation lasted almost ten years, and he was already getting used to the idea that he would have to change his profession. If he had not been called to the series “The Capercaillie”, then most likely the acting career of Denis Rozhkov would never have taken place.
Denis constantly starred in minor roles, and perfectly understood that they would not bring him neither fame nor material well-being. There were also few performances, and they paid ridiculous money for it. Rozhkov could not reveal himself as an actor, he simply had nowhere to do it, but soon dramatic changes took place in his life.
And in 2008, his time came. Rozhkov was invited to the series "Capercaillie", where he very organically reincarnated as traffic police inspector Denis Antoshin. Rozhkov belongs to those actors who have long been waiting for their triumph, and when they wait, they do not lose luck. If before this project he was a little-known artist, then after the release of the series real fame and recognition fell upon him.
The directors managed to assemble a very strong cast in this series. All the actors required the highest skill, and they brilliantly demonstrated it on the screen. The task of directors and producers was to find interesting stories that would keep the viewer's attention up to standard. Filming was very dynamic and did not stop for a single day. The popularity of the series gained momentum with each new series.
After filming, Rozhkov discovered the secret of relations with the performer of the role of Nastya Maria Boltneva. They were quite complex, the actors could not get used to each other on the set. But they are professionals, and they perfectly understood that the success of the project depends on their coordinated work, therefore they tried to find a compromise in difficult situations.
Capercaillie became the most significant project in the creative biography of Rozhkov. He practically did not leave the set, every month for more than twenty days he was under the spotlights. It got to the point that he saw his colleagues in the film more often than family. At this time, Rozhkov did not leave the theater either. He did not refuse from entreprise productions and performances in the Old Theater. The artist had to constantly wander from Moscow to St. Petersburg, but he was never late.
Thanks to the series, Denis Rozhkov gained the long-awaited popularity. After the release of The Capercaillie, he became very popular, and before that, for ten years his name was almost unknown to the general public. The series was shot for two years, and the actor admits that it is very difficult to be in this image for such a long time, but he tried very hard. And as time showed, he succeeded. Denis Rozhkov has absolutely no star fever, although he said that sometimes there are still “bouts".
At the Old Theater, Denis Rozhkov takes the stage in productions of “Hamster's Day, or Russian Happiness,” “My Heart is in the Mountains,” and “Tea Ceremony.” The artist considers his creative career to be quite successful.
In the creative work of the actor, there are a lot of roles of police officers, but, according to Rozhkov himself, they did not become of the same type. He has to play different people, and each of them has a completely different understanding of life.
In 2011, Denis Rozhkov played the image of a fighter pilot in the TV series “Aliens Wings”. This role once again proves that he is not a hostage to one role, and completely organically feels in a different way.
In 2012, the actor returned to the role of a policeman in the film "Alien District". He became the captain of the police Andrei Frolov. With each new series, the series was watched by more and more viewers, and therefore it was decided to remove its continuation.
Theater and films
At the end of the Moscow Art Theater School, Denis began to participate in theatrical projects. The young artist played on the stage of the Debut Center at the Central House of the actor in the play “Pure Truth”.
At the same time he participated in performances on the stage of the Russian Realistic Theater. Here Rozhkov was remembered by the audience for the roles of Lensky in "Eugene Onegin" and Alyosha in "The Brothers Karamazov", but did not receive full satisfaction from the work, either creatively or materially.

There were few roles, because of the modest pay, I had to constantly look for additional earnings. It was typical for the actors "Dedmorozovskie" morning performances and corporate parties. In addition, Rozhkov worked as a correspondent on television, at one time he was seriously interested in video editing - he even wanted to make it his profession. From January to July 2011, Denis hosted the program “Culinary Duel” on the NTV channel, and even earlier was the co-host of the Russian Lotto television show.
All this time, the actor dreamed of serious work in the cinema, but the directors were in no hurry with the proposals. Since 2003, Rozhkov appears in episodic scenes. The background game was not to the liking of an ambitious performer.

The film debut was the role of the digger in the series "Blind", in 2003 - the same episodic role of the bandit nicknamed Lemon in the series "Next". According to Denis, after 10 years of inactivity, he has already begun to think about quitting his acting career. And if not for the role of Denis Antoshin, perhaps he would have changed jobs.
The man constantly got not bright roles.He felt that these works would not be significant for his career. There were few performances, wages were low. This state of affairs did not allow to fully reveal acting talent, but still the situation is gradually improving.
Denis Rozhkov in the series "Capercaillie"
In 2008, a turning point came in his professional acting career. In the series "Capercaillie" he plays the role of Denis Antoshin, traffic police inspector. Rozhkov is an actor who has been waiting for a high point for many years. There has been no successful breakthrough for the entire career, but the brilliant game in the movie "Capercaillie" opens up new opportunities for Denis.
A bright team has gathered in this project. The filmmakers completed the plan, performing their roles at a high level. The directors and producers constantly wanted to bring to life new scenes that could even more attract the attention of the viewer. The team was always busy with work, because the series was becoming more and more popular among the Russian audience.
Denis Rozhkov and Maria Boltneva
In an interview, Rozhkov admitted that he had a difficult relationship with actress Maria Boltneva, who played Nastya in the television series “Capercaillie”. During the filming, they did not have the necessary level of understanding, but still for the sake of a common goal, the actors managed to find a compromise on specific tasks.
Filming in the movie "Capercaillie" became for Denis Rozhkov the most significant in his professional career. He was constantly in the working process, followed by 22 shooting days per month. As a result, he saw actor Maxim Averin more often than his wife. In addition, in parallel, Denis was able to play in entreprise productions and in the Old Theater. He lived in 2 cities, torn between his native Moscow and St. Petersburg. In the future, it’s the series that will bring Rozhkov popularity.
In one interview, the actor admitted:
“As they say, I woke up famous, because in fact I’ve been idle for 10 years. During this time I tried a lot. He worked on television. And he was a correspondent, and selected people to participate in the reality show "Hunger-2." Engaged in installation, which I really liked. I even thought of making it my profession, but suddenly they offered the role of Antoshin. Professionally, the series taught me a lot. It’s hard for 2 years to “hold” the character. I consider this my achievement. Popularity is nice, but I hope I won’t suffer from a star disease. Although sometimes it already slips. ”
On the stage of the Old Theater, Rozhkov was busy in several performances: “Hamster's Day, or Russian happiness”, “My heart is in the mountains”, “Tea ceremony”. The artist himself believes that his creative career was a success.
